If you live in the catchment area (please ask reception staff who will advise you on this) you will need to complete a registration form and new patient health questionnaire which are available from reception. You will need to make a 20 minute appointment with the Nurse/Health Care Assistant who will carry out a new patient health check. This is a basic check in which we will ask you about your health, family medical history and carry out an examination of height, weight , BP and a urine sample (please ask at reception for a sample bottle – red top)
